I have no idea what to do, and the teacher wants the volumetric flow rate (in cm).

A commonly used rule of thumb is that average velocity in a pipe should be about 1 m/s or less for "thin"(viscosity about water). If a pipe needs to deliver 6,000 m^3 of water a day, what diameter is required to satisfy the 1 m/s rule?
